Dr. Jesusito Zubiri has been practicing the science and art of plastic & reconstructive surgery for over twenty years and has developed an approach to aesthetic procedures based on the enduring and classic hallmarks of beauty: harmony, proportion and clarity. In Cebu City, he is perhaps better known for his technique of constructing a "double fold" in the oriental eyelid, a technique which he later modified to create a more natural "double eyelid" in the oriental patient. This technique was published in the Clinics of Plastic Surgery (Oct 1981).
